    Daman-e-Koh is the most visited place in Islamabad. It is the oldest picnic point for tourists and has a beautiful view of Islamabad city.

    I frequently visit Margallas for quick hikes, with friends or family. The experience is always wonderful. The mountains are such a blessing for the people living in Islamabad. Trail 6,5 and 3 are my favourites.

    Well it was a family visit back in 2015.. Sorry there were no options to select year 2015 so selected the last option. We reached there around 3 or 4..visited the temple and then had lunch at the restaurant.. It was such a nice experience sitting close to nature and history. I would love to visit again.

    It is a place where people of every age has got something of their interest. There are swings, slides and the likes for small kids. There are "fun-tracks" cars and bikes for young and old. There is a very good bird-park for nature lovers and kids alike where there is huge variety of beautiful and colourful birds. As the facility is on Rawal-lake side, boating and cruise is another luxury available. Lush green lawns provides ample space for sitting, eating and enjoying with family and friends. The only thing I don't like about all this is that at weekends it is over crowded. Nevertheless it is a place worth visiting at least once if you happen to be in Islamabad.

    A bit strenuous hike - but wonderfully refreshing. It can be a bit crowded, I prefer early earnings.

    It's a wonderful place I visit last year and this place makes me a real fan soon visit again. It is surrounded by flowering trees and has gardens, secluded picnic spots, and a walking path around the lake. It is possible to picnic, fish, and boat in the terraced garden and on the lake. Views of Rawalpindi, Islamabad, the Lake Margalla, and the Murree hills can be enjoyed from the highest point in the garden.

    It is accessible by Shakarparian road. parking is free at owner’s risk. Entry fee is Rs 20 for adults local and free for children. Foreigners will pay approx 1£.
    It is actually complex comprised of open area namely (Pakistan Monument) where there is engraved images of Pakistan’s history, famous Places of Pakistan and Indo-Pakistan civilisation.
    Due to high altitude u can have bird’s eye view of whole Islamabad and can capture snaps to cherish.

    Important. Face mask is necessary to be worn due to pandemic situation.

    Don’t forget to visit monument Museum located inside complex

    A few nice caves and large old trees which showed the natural world well. The visit was made by having excellent live musicians playing ‘Quawalli’ in the background.
